Sunday Times savages BT
Minces BT, but not words
Reg tips its beak to the Sunday Times - and to David Hewson in particular - for his assassination of BT in yesterday's bumper edition of the weekend read.
For sheer vitriolic, no-holds-barred entertainment, Mr Hewson's attack on BT - or "Big Thief" as he calls it - was just exemplary.
Observations like "the progress of BT from fat, lazy public monopoly to fat, lazier private one was the last great tragedy of 20th-century British commerce" are just to die for.
So to is this assessment: "BT stands between Britain and the wired world, a pre-information-age dinosaur struggling to lip-read a script it can never understand."
You can read his rant here.
Oh, and if you'd like to get in contact David we'd be honoured to let you have one of our Register T-shirts. ®
